Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Amabelle Aguiluz
Availability: 12 open
Curious about weaving, but don’t know warp from weft? Join LA-based artist and instructor Amabelle Aguiluz for this beginner’s workshop on the fundamentals of weaving. In this course, students will be guided and supported in creating a simple, small scale woven piece. Amabelle will cover foundational weaving techniques including warping a wooden board loom, basic plain weave structures, rya knots, and creating freeform shapes and patterns with yarn. Natural and repurposed materials will be provided for students to create their initial, unique weavings. Students will take home the wooden board looms used in class, and leave feeling equipped to continue practicing and experimenting beyond this workshop.
Looms and all materials are provided by WildCraft.
